(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie (Republican) is planning to launch his 2024 presidential bid for the White House next week in New Hampshire according to several reports.
Axios was the first to report that the former governor, who has been considering whether or not to join the presidential race for months is planning on announcing his 2024 campaign next Tuesday. Christie previously ran for the White House in 2016, and in recent years has become known for being a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump.
Christie is scheduled to speak at Saint Anselm College in Goffstown, New Hampshire on Tuesday night, this has also been confirmed by the Hill. CNN in their report claimed that Christie was preparing to announce his candidacy next week according to three unidentified sources. Earlier this week, Christie’s allies created a super PAC in support of his candidacy which has been perceived as further proof that he is preparing to place a bid on the White House.
The Tell It Like It Is PAC is led by Republican operative Brian Jones and Republican National Committee members Bill Palatucci and Russ Schriefer. Trump, who has been a big critic of Trump for the past few months, has tried to present himself as an alternative to the former President for months. Most recently during a segment for ABC, where he is a contributor, he claimed that in his opinion Republicans would not win if Trump is the 2024 presidential nominee.
If Christie does join the race this is going to be his second bid for the presidency. His previous bid had him finishing sixth in New Hampshire before leaving the race.
